Remarkable resemblance of mothers of Charlottesville and Sandy Hook victims

Alert Americans found out about crisis actors because of the Sandy Hook false flag of December 14, 2012 — professional actors who simulate, i.e., pretend to be victims or bystanders or even perpetrators in mass casualty events.

Not only are there crisis actors, there are even amputee crisis actors!

We also know that there “public relations” firms that solicit actors for events, including rallies and protests. Below is a Craig’s List ad by Los Angeles public relations firm Crowds on Demand, soliciting “actors and photographers” in Charlotte, NC, to “participate” in “events” including rallies and protests.

This morning, FOTM reader jim alerted us to a video uploaded to YouTube by Joecol Flyer, on the remarkable similarities between the mothers of two victims in two separate incidents. The two mothers are:

  1. Susan Bro: the mother of Heather D. Heyer, 32, a paralegal who was killed on August 12, 2017 at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, VA, by a car allegedly driven by James A. Fields Jr.
  2. Donna Fagan-Soto: the mother of Victoria Soto, 27, a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, who allegedly was shot to death, along with 25 other victims, by Adam Lanza on December 14, 2012.

About two hours after I watched the YouTube video, it was removed “for violating YouTube‘s policy on harassment and bullying”. Fortunately, I had taken notes from the video and viewers’ comments, which enable me to conduct my own research.

Let’s compare Susan Bro and Donna Soto!

(1) Susan Bro

According to Spokeo people search, Heather D. Heyer, 32, of Charlottesville, VA, had a relative named Susan Heyer with two ages, 60 and 68, both at the same address in Ruckersville, VA:

Here’s a video interview of Susan Bro on Aug. 14, 2017, one day after her daughter Heather Heyer was killed. Pay close attention to Bro’s voice.

(2) Donna Soto

According to Wikipedia, Victoria Leigh Soto, born in November 1985, was 27 years old when she was gunned down by Adam Lanza while trying to protect her students. She was awarded posthumously the Presidential Citizens Medal. Victoria’s parents are Carlos Soto and Donna Fagan-Soto. Her obituary says Victoria’s siblings are Jillian, Carlee and Carlos Matthew Soto.

I found the right Donna Soto on Spokeo: Donna L. Soto of Stratford, CT, age 58. Strangely, among Donna’s relatives is Victoria Soto, who has been dead for almost 5 years:

  • Carlos Soto, 57.
  • Carlee Soto, 24.
  • Jillian Soto, 28.
  • Victoria Soto, 31, born November 1985, of Willimantic, CT. Here’s the link to her Spokeo page.

Here’s a video interview of Donna Soto on Dec. 19, 2012, five days after her daughter Victoria had been brutally gunned down.

(3) Comparison

Below are screenshots of Susan Bro and Donna Soto which I’d taken from their respective video interviews. Bear in mind that if they are the same person, Susan Bro would be a 5-year older version of Donna Soto, with undyed hair and no makeup.

Since people can look different in different photographs, I found some other images of the two women for another side-by-side comparison that is even more striking in their similarities. The source of the Susan Bro image is an ABC TV interview (video here); the source of the Soto image is a Getty photo of Donna Soto leaving Lordship Community Church after a funeral for her daughter Victoria on December 19, 2012, in Stratford, Connecticut.

Here are the similarities that I see:

  • Same egg-shaped face.
  • Same eyebrow shape, although Bro’s eyebrows are lighter in color.
  • Same deep lines, called nasolabial folds, along the sides of their mouths (see the yellow arrows I painted on the first side-by-side pics); same dimple-indentations at the corners of their mouths (see light blue arrows).
  • Both wear rectangular-shaped spectacles.
  • Same pudgy chin; same horizontal fold across their fat necks.
  • Same voice.
  • Both women punctuate their speech with “And” and “Um”.
  • Both said “And um”:
    • Susan Bro said “And um” at the 1:47 mark in her video.
    • Donna Soto said “And um” at the 0:35 and 1:04 marks in her video.
  • Both Bro and Soto used the word “passion/passionate” to describe their respective daughters:
    • Bro said, “Heather, her entire life has been passionate about justice” (0:01 mark).
    • Soto said, “that was her [Victoria’s] passion” (0:33 mark).
  • Both Bro and Soto flick their tongues out when they speak.

The dissimilarities are:

  • Soto’s eyes are larger (because of makeup)?
  • Their noses are slightly different, but that may be because of the angles of their heads.
  • Soto seems to have a larger mouth.

What do you think?

Speaking of the Soto family, I had noted in my post, “Remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook victims and professional crisis actors,” that Victoria Soto’s brother and sister, Carlos Matthew and Carlee, look remarkably like the children of a professional (though obscure) actress, Jennifer Greenberg Sexton.

Also, there is an interesting video, “Car Attack Victim Heather Heyer – Where is She Now?,” which was first uploaded to YouTube, but was taken down censored by YouTube. Thankfully, the video was re-uploaded to Vimeo.

Hilarious audition tape of a crisis actor

You have to admit his fake name “Harrison Hanks” is simply brilliant, evocative of two very popular Hollywood superstars, Harrison Ford and Tom Hanks.

So how many layers of fakery do we have here?:

  • Harrison Hanks: fake name
  • Crisis actor — someone pretending to be a victim or another role in a public tragedy, like a mass shooting — is a fake person to begin with.
  • But “Harrison Hanks” is a fake crisis actor. Too funny!

Judge blocks California’s high-capacity magazine ban

second amendment3

Score one for the Second Amendment.

From ABC News: A federal judge on Thursday blocked a California law set to take effect Saturday that would have barred gun owners from possessing high-capacity ammunition magazines.

The judge ruled that the ban approved by the Legislature and voters last year takes away gun owners’ Second Amendment rights and amounts to the government taking people’s private property without compensation.

California law has prohibited buying or selling the magazines since 2000, but until now allowed those who had them to keep them.

“Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of otherwise law-abiding citizens will have an untenable choice: become an outlaw or dispossess one’s self of lawfully acquired property,” San Diego-based U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez wrote. (Judge Benitez was appointed by George W. Bush.)

He issued a preliminary injunction blocking the law from taking effect while he considers the underlying lawsuit filed by the National Rifle Association-affiliated California Rifle & Pistol Association.

Meanwhile, a Sacramento-based judge on Thursday rejected a similar challenge by several other gun owners’ rights organizations, creating what Ari Freilich, staff attorney at the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, called “dueling opinions” that may be sorted out on appeal. “Unfortunately this law will be delayed but we are confident it will go into effect, and soon,” he said.

He called the San Diego lawsuit and ruling part of an effort by the NRA “to delay and dismantle California’s law brick by brick.”

Had the ban taken effect, owners would have been required to get rid of their magazines by sending them out of state, altering them to hold no more than 10 bullets, destroying them or turning them into law enforcement agencies. Possession could have been punished by $100 fines or up to a year in jail.

Owners can now keep the magazines until a final ruling by Benitez or if an appeals court overturns his injunction, said Chuck Michel, attorney for the NRA and the California Rifle & Pistol Association.

“This court recognized that the Second Amendment is not a second-class right and that law-abiding gun owners have the right to own these magazines to defend themselves and their families,” Michel said.

State lawmakers approved the ban last year as part of a package of bills adding to what already were some of the nation’s strictest gun laws. Voters agreed in November when they approved Proposition 63, a measure that toughened the penalties by allowing violators to be fined or jailed.

Benitez said he was mindful of voters’ approval and government’s legitimate interest in protecting the public but added that the “Constitution is a shield from the tyranny of the majority.”

Gun owner’s constitutional rights “are not eliminated simply because they possess ‘unpopular’ magazines holding more than 10 rounds,” he wrote in a 66-page decision.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra criticized the decision but did not say what he will do next. “Proposition 63 was overwhelmingly approved by voters to increase public safety and enhance security in a sensible and constitutional way,” Becerra said in a statement. “I will defend the will of California voters because we cannot continue to lose innocent lives due to gun violence.”

Supporters say that magazines often holding 30 or 100 bullets are typically used in mass shootings and aren’t needed by hunters or civilian owners. “Clearly it escalates the lethality in any mass shooting when high-capacity magazines are involved,” said Amanda Wilcox, a spokeswoman for the California chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence whose daughter was fatally shot.

Forcing assailants to change magazines more frequently gives victims time to flee or subdue the shooter, Becerra argued in court filings.

He listed as examples the shooting in Orlando, Florida, that killed 49 people and injured 53; the terrorist assault that killed 14 and injured 22 in San Bernardino; the massacre of children and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut; and the Arizona attack that killed six and wounded 13 including former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Moreover, the government wouldn’t own the magazines in the way it would property seized for a new highway or public building, he argued, since the magazines would be destroyed by law enforcement agencies.

Becerra said opponents’ Second Amendment challenge has repeatedly been rejected by other courts, allowing at least seven other states and 11 local governments to already restrict the possession or sale of large-capacity ammunition magazines.

Who’s grieving? This dog or these Sandy Hook parents?

Molika Ashford writes for Live Science, Dec. 28, 2010:

“People often assign feelings to animals […] But scientists haven’t determined whether these human-like expressions really mean anything. […]

Scientists believe that certain brain cells in humans called spindle cells are responsible for human social behavior and the interplay between thoughts and feelings. Studies have revealed that chimpanzee, dolphin and whale brains also possess spindle cells. Although these are all animals that can act people-like, the presence of these cells does not mean that the animals have feelings.

Even animals that don’t have spindle cells, such as dogs, have shown behaviors that can suggest a human-like social sense. In recent experiments, dogs have shown that they know to follow a human’s pointed finger to find a food treat. Scientists report that this shows dogs are sensitive to human social cues and are able to correctly interpret them. Still, this only proves that dogs know how to find food, not that they have feelings.

[…] In a recent study, a Barnard College researcher tested dogs to see if their guilty looks were linked to actual bad behavior. Dogs were tempted with a treat and told by their owners not to eat it.

The dog’s owners weren’t allowed to see whether their pets had eaten the treat or not, but were told either that they did or that they didn’t, and were then instructed to scold the dogs that disobeyed. The experimenters noted that scolded dogs showed a guilty look whether or not they had actually done wrong.

This illustrates the difficulty in accurately interpreting animal behavior as a marker of human-like feelings. A guilty look suggests a feeling of guilt in a human but not necessarily in a dog, according to the Barnard research. Similarly, even apparent mourning or empathy behavior might not actually mean these feelings are present in the brains of animals.

Oh yeah?

Tell me this dog, grieving over the death of a companion, doesn’t have feelings. Note his repeated gasping/choking toward the end of the video, his entire body shaking.

And yet we are to believe Christopher and Lynn McDonnell are grieving parents whose child, Grace, was killed by Adam Lanza in Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012.

I don’t need “scientists” to tell me the meaning of what I can see with my own eyes, which is that the dog was overcome with feelings of distraught and grief, whereas the smiling and tearless McDonnells were acting.

If the McDonnells were grieving, they sure have a strange way of showing it. I’d sure like to see “scientists” explain their peculiar display of “feelings” over their 7-year-old daughter’s murder.

By the way, Christopher and Lynn McDonnell are among the Sandy Hook residents who purchased their home on December 25, 2009, for $0.

57 y.o. mentally-ill woman sentenced to 5 mos. for Sandy Hook death threats & belief in conspiracy theories

James Tracy, a former tenured professor at Florida Atlantic University, received many vicious death threats for simply exercising his First Amendment right of free speech on Sandy Hook. (See “Hate mail, death threats sent to Prof. James Tracy for being a Sandy Hook skeptic“)

Not only was nothing done about the death threats Dr. Tracy received to both himself and his young children, FAU saw fit to fire this tenured professor for a trivial administrative reason — that of not filing a piece of paperwork in a timely manner.

Contrast Tracy to the case of Lucy Richards, a 57-year-old mentally-ill, wheelchair-bound woman. Two days ago in Florida, Richards was sentenced to 5 months in prison for issuing death threats by voice- and e-mail to Lenny Pozner, father of alleged Sandy Hook child victim Noah.

Even more troubling is that in sentencing Lucy Richards, U.S. District Judge James I. Cohn, a George W. Bush nominee, pronounced that “no one should cite a conspiracy theory or belief in a hoax in the deaths of 20 children and six adults that occurred at the school,” thereby implicitly criminalizing belief in conspiracy theories.

As if the U.S. government had not been proven to engage in conspiracies again and again. (See Nixon’s Watergate and the Kennedy Administration’s stunning Operation Northwoods as examples.)

Professor James Fetzer received a phone call that Richards had attempted to commit suicide. See his post “CBS NEWS: Woman who threatened parent of Sandy Hook victim sent to jail“.

See also “Sandy Hook hoax: 6 signs that school was closed before massacre“.

By the way, did you know that it was the CIA who, in 1967, coined the term “conspiracy theories” and recommended its use to the media for the express purpose to discredit speculations about the Kennedy assassination? (ZeroHedge)

Cinderella's Broom

A study in contrasts.

In June 2016, three boys, all Muslim migrants,  rape a developmentally disabled five-year-old girl, Jayla Peterson, in Twin Falls, Idaho. The oldest boy films the entire incident.

Months later, it’s as if an actual rape had never happened. The boys are found guilty not of rape, but of lewd sexual conduct. And the proceedings, which were said to involve five hours of commiserating with the boys’ “post-traumatic stress disorder,” are kept secret.

After the sentencing, also kept secret, the judge forbids the family to talk about why they are grievously unhappy with his decision, threatening to jail them if they do. They are treated as if they are the criminals.

Jayla Peterson’s  emotional turmoil is a footnote; not even that, it is as if she never suffered, never experienced pain, will not be changed forever by the terror and humiliation she was forced to endure by…

US appeals court upholds Maryland assault weapons ban

debbie ar15

Me shooting a “weapon of war.” Molṑn Labé.

Next stop: SCOTUS.

From Fox News: Maryland’s ban on 45 kinds of assault weapons and its 10-round limit on gun magazines were upheld Tuesday by a federal appeals court in a decision that met with a strongly worded dissent.

In a 10-4 ruling, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., said the guns banned under Maryland’s law aren’t protected by the Second Amendment.

“Put simply, we have no power to extend Second Amendment protections to weapons of war,” Judge Robert King wrote for the court, adding that the Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller explicitly excluded such coverage.

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, who led the push for the law in 2013 as a state senator, said it’s “unthinkable that these weapons of war, weapons that caused the carnage in Newtown and in other communities across the country, would be protected by the Second Amendment.”

“It’s a very strong opinion, and it has national significance, both because it’s en-banc and for the strength of its decision,” Frosh said, noting that all of the court’s judges participated.

Judge William Traxler issued a dissent. By concluding the Second Amendment doesn’t even apply, Traxler wrote, the majority “has gone to greater lengths than any other court to eviscerate the constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.” He also wrote that the court did not apply a strict enough review on the constitutionality of the law.

“For a law-abiding citizen who, for whatever reason, chooses to protect his home with a semi-automatic rifle instead of a semi-automatic handgun, Maryland’s law clearly imposes a significant burden on the exercise of the right to arm oneself at home, and it should at least be subject to strict scrutiny review before it is allowed to stand,” Traxler wrote.

National Rifle Association spokeswoman Jennifer Baker said, “It is absurd to hold that the most popular rifle in America is not a protected arm' under the Second Amendment."</strong> She added that the majority opinion "clearly ignores the Supreme Court's guidance from District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects arms that arein common use at the time for lawful purposes like self-defense.”‘

The NRA estimates there are 5 million to 10 million AR-15s — one of the weapons banned under Maryland’s law — in circulation in the United States for lawful purposes. Asked about an appeal, Baker said the NRA is exploring all options.

But Elizabeth Banach, executive director of Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence, said the decision is “overwhelming proof that reasonable measures to prevent gun violence are constitutional.”

“Maryland’s law needs to become a national model of evidence-based policies that will reduce gun violence,” Banach wrote in a statement.

U.S. District Judge Catherine Blake upheld the ban in 2015, but a divided three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last year that she didn’t apply the proper legal standard. The panel sent the case back to Blake and ordered her to apply “strict scrutiny,” a more rigorous test of a law’s constitutionality. The state appealed to the full appeals court.

Maryland passed the sweeping gun-control measure after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that killed 20 children and six educators in Connecticut. King mentioned the massacre at the start of the ruling.

“Both before and after Newtown, similar military-style rifles and detachable magazines have been used to perpetrate mass shootings in places whose names have become synonymous with the slaughters that occurred there,” King wrote. He listed the 2012 shootings at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado; the December 2015 shootings in San Bernardino, California; and the shootings last year at an Orlando, Florida, nightclub, where 49 people were killed and 53 injured.

King also noted that enacting the law is “precisely the type of judgment that legislatures are allowed to make without second-guessing by a court.”

“Simply put, the State has shown all that is required: a reasonable, if not perfect, fit between the (Firearms Safety Act) and Maryland’s interest in protecting public safety,” King wrote.

Hillary Clinton’s changing appearance: Special lighting and body double

I have posted before on the puzzling changing appearances of Hillary Clinton. See:

chamaleon-hillary

Thanks to WikiLeaks, we now have an answer.

On Feb. 26, 2015, John Podesta received a forwarded email from asowers@shangrila.us, of a long email chain from Patrick Woodroffe (of lighting designers Woodroffe Bassett Design) to Huma Abedin and others on procuring two lighting directors to provide Hillary Clinton with special, i.e., flattering lighting for all her campaign appearances.

Below are the pertinent quotes from Woodroffe’s email, followed by screenshots I took of those quotes. To see the email on WikiLeaks, go here.

sending to you all again with some more edits and clarification on the idea of two lighting directors. Wanted to make it clear that only ever one at any time attending and being paid!”

I think we are all agreed that the idea of HRC’s campaign having someone who is specifically looking out for the way she is lit in all her television and public appearances, is an important one.”

“We should also meet and of the clothing, hair and make up people you have in place with a view to working as a team to make a complete package.”

“I am suggesting that we have not one, but two people to be available on call. Only one of them will ever be on the on the touring team at any a time, but they will both know exactly what is required of them and they will both be known by the campaign staff.”

“Personally I don’t believe that the fact that HRC has people who take care of her hair, make-up and lighting is such a big deal, but although we will do everything in our power to avoid such a leak, we should also be clear as to how we respond if the thing is ever made public.”

special-lighting-for-hillary1special-lighting-for-hillary2special-lighting-for-hillary3

After she lost the election, there was no longer any need for special lighting/makeup/hair, which would account for why Hillary looked like a cadaver in her first post-election public appearance on November 17, 2017:

hillary-one-week-after-election-loss

Another explanation for why Hillary Clinton sometimes looked younger and better during the 2016 presidential campaign is the employment of a body double.

Below is a video on compelling evidence that Hillary Clinton used a body double. As Professor Jim Fetzer explains:

“The ratio of the distance between the pupils to the bottom of the upper teeth . . . appears to be constant throughout one’s life. Hillary had an eye-teeth ratio of 1/1.2, but her double–who was by far the best and even substituted for her during the debates–had an eye-teeth ratio of 1/1.06.”
